No. You have to eat it or be bitten by the animal.

No. Contact with the dead animal is necessary, usually with its saliva. (And, of course, the animal has to have been already infected with rabies. Contact with a non-infected dead animal will not give you rabies.)

Yes, They can because a other animal can bite an dead animal and give it rabies!!


No, Only if a dog bits us we will get rabies.



no, you kan only get rabies if bit or direct contact wit an animal with your hands


Absolutely, if the body is relatively fresh and the rabies can still feed off of it.


No. Rabies are only carried by warm blooded animals and they have to bite you. Any rabies virus would be dead if the animal tissue was dry and exposed to the sunlight.


No. Frogs do not carry rabies. And even if they did, driving a bike over one would not give you rabies.


No, but there is risk if the bacteria from the cow enters into an open wound or sore or even gets in the eyes or mouth of the person if the dead animal is being handled improperly.


This question is rather confusing. However, if a dog is biting people this much, the dog needs attention of some kind. If a dog bites someone, there is probably a law in your area (if you are from the US) that it needs to be reported and then quarantined for ten days. That's the law in NYS where I live. This is to be certain the dog doesn't have rabies. My dog bit someone and even though we had proof that she had rabies vaccinations, we had to quarantine her for ten days. If your dog does not have rabies and is not vaccinated it will not catch rabies by biting a person unless the person the dog bit was carrying rabies, which is very, very unlikely. An animal catches rabies from other infected animals, from either getting scratched or bitten by that animal, or from eating a dead animal that had rabies. That's why it is so important to get your dog vaccinated every year.


it means that the person you are walking with is not the right person for you.


Rabies cannot be cured. It may only be prevented via vaccinations. If a human is bitten by a suspected rabies animal, the vaccination must be administered within 2 hours of the bite so as to produce inhibitory antibodies against the rabies virus. But once a person is infected with rabies, they will be dead within 2 weeks. Rabies has a 100% death rate in non-vaccinated individuals unfortunately...


A 'dead man walking' is a person freely walking and moving (i.e. alive) but certainly very soon-to-be killed.


When the dog dies, the rabies disease dies along with it. The only way to get rabies is by being bitten and the animal breaking your skin. Why the hell would you want to eat your dead dog?!?!?!?!?!





actually that is when people get rabies most.



yes, but mice very rarely have rabies



The safest thing for you to do is to call your local police or animal control group. Let them handle and remove the animal. Animals that appear dead may not be, and approaching or trying to handle them may cause serious injury. You may expose yourself to rabies, and you do not want to do that.


Once a raccoon begins exhibiting symptoms of rabies it will be dead in a few days. It is doubtful that raccoons can carry the rabies virus without becoming sick. In order for an animal to become immune to rabies they would have to contract the disease and survive. Rabies is such a virulent and deadly disease that few, if any, can survive.
